There was a mild drama at the plenary on Wednesday when the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, read the cover letter by President Muhammadu Buhari on an executive bill.
Reading out the letter to members, the mention of “transmission” in its title generated laughter in the chamber.
The title read, ‘Transmission of the Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contracts Amendment Bill 2018.’
The laughter was ‘transmitted’ to Saraki, making him to laugh too.
“Let me start again,” he said.
Buhari’s letter read, “I forward herewith a draft Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contracts Amendment Bill 2018 for the kind consideration and passage by the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, while hoping that the bill will receive the usual expeditious consideration and passage by the distinguished Senate.”
A video captured by Liberty Television had showed the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, allegedly struggling to read a speech at the inauguration of the Police Technical Intelligence Unit in Kano, Kano State, in May.
The viral video showed the IG allegedly stuttering over words like “commission” and “transmission.”
